Fico Finance Nelson Giants tallman Phill Jones with his recognition of 350 games.
Last night was a very historic night for the Fico Finance Nelson Giants. The man who most of us know as the Giants stalwart and key playmaker, Phill Jones, hit quite a remarkable milestone for any top level athlete. Phill has completed 350 games now for the Nelson Giants!
The game itself, against the Zero Fees Southland Sharks was not such a great result though, with the Fico Finance Nelson Giants shut out by a mere 9 points.
After the Fico Finance Nelson Giants had a few bad minutes, the Zero Fees Southland Sharks were able to capitalise on this turn in the game and sustained it until the end to take the win, 83-94.
Results aside, the achievement by Phill to hit 350 games is amazing, and worth a celebration in itself.
